She thought she was the luckiest woman in London . . .

Surviving on a seamstress' income and a steady stream of fantasies, Prudence Bosworth has always longed for love and romance. Then she inherits a fortune from the father she's never seen, with the stipulation that she wed in one year. Prudence is determined to marry for true love, and after seeing firsthand the splendid chivalry of a certain duke, only one man will do . . .

Rhys de Winter, the Duke of St. Cyres, hides his cynicism behind a quick wit and an even quicker smile. He must marry an heiress, and as luck would have it, the pretty little seamstress-turned-heiress is exactly what he needs. But he never expected to fall for Prudence, and when his shocking deception is revealed, he will stop at nothing to win her back . . . even if it means renouncing every last one of his wicked ways.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad In contrast to its predecessor, Prudence's book lacked substance. More than half of the book was based on Rhys's lies and deception. Even though Rhys truly ended up falling for his heiress, Prudence found out about his lies way too late into the story. Being a romantic, Prudence fell in love with Rhys when she saw him in heroic action. I could understand why she fell for him. She was innocent, naive and kind, which is exactly why Rhys fell for her. I think Rhys should have told her truth himself. Everything just happened too quickly in the end, with Prudence finding out the truth and leaving Rhys and with Rhys redeeming himself. All of that happened in the space of two chapters. However, I do think that Rhys redeemed himself and it was only fair that Prudence in turn tested him. I think their relationship would have felt more natural if Rhys's lies were revealed at about halfway through the book at least. But the saving grace was that I could truly see Rhys falling for her despite his lies.
